this blog is essentially an online diary of my little creative projects - if you can't fix it, throw some glitter over it and add a lacy edge and everything will be alright.

very small portions

things have been rather busy with work and uni lately, so my making things has been put on hold....but a girl still needs to eat, and if she happens to be eating ice cream, she may as well be making it too:

this is chestnut ice cream, another 'still chill' recipe which i didn't really stick to - chestnut paste (creme de marrons) is one of my favourite things, and as making things into ice cream can only ever improve them...

you will need:
around 225ml chestnut paste
about 300ml double cream (beaten 'til more solid)
about 50g of icing sugar
2 tablespoons of sherry, unless you're me and don't want to spend a tenner on sherry, so replace it with some muscovado sugar and half a cap of vaniller essence.

mix everything together and freeze in a shallow dish. then eat. in very small portions as it is incredibly rich!
